Theo James & Shailene Woodley answered fan questions on EW's Facebook: Transcript

What was your favorite scene to shoot? Is there anything that you were looking forward to from the books particularly?
I loved the ferris wheel scene, that was badass. How often in life do you get to climb a ferris wheel? – S
If you went into the fear simulation what do you think your fears would be?
Guacamole and killer sharks. – T
What fraction do you feel a part of? What one would you choose?
Dauntless, Abnegation & Amity -S
You would be Divergent -T
Shailene, are you a lot like Tris? What’s your favorite thing about Tris?
I love that she has a delicate balance between selflessness and being brave -S
How much did you get to interact with Veronica Roth and what was that like?
We had dinner 3 days in with her, we were able to ask her questions about the series that helped informed our own narrative for the character. -T
What was your favorite part about working together?
Shai was a very cool and open person, we had a natural chemistry from the screen test and I knew that was going to help us -T
He’s super badass and does his own stunts, so it was cool to be part of that world -S

Vulture: Theo James and Shailene Woodley sort each other into factions, and more:

Which section would Woodley place her co-star in? "I would say the old Dauntless. Dauntless the way it used to be," she said. "Theo is a very compassionate person, and the old Dauntless sort of stood for security and bravery."

"I would say Shai would be Dauntless, Amity, and Candor," replied James. "You're quite honest."

"I am pretty honest," Woodley laughed. (She's not kidding!) "Well, if we get to choose a few, you'd also be Erudite."

"You'd also be Abnegation, because you're so selfless," said James. "You think beyond yourself." Indeed, the unusually generous and friendly actress had already hugged this reporter twice within five minutes of meeting.
 On dressing up: "I dressed once as the old Batman — the pow pow Batman," said James. "I did it at university, and it was retro, I suppose. There was a Robin as well, and we both stuffed our crotches." He began to point repeatedly at his nether regions. "Our crotches were really full." He continued pointing at his package. Reader, your Vulture reporter had too much propriety to even look. (Read the full interview here)

Moviefone interview with Theo and Shailene:

Theo James: We want them to approach it as something different and new. Any preconceptions about it being a YA -- obviously, it has that tag -- but they're all unique in their own ways. And Veronica has created a very unique and strong and dynamic world, coupled with [director Neil Burger]'s vision of it. And then, hopefully, what we've done collectively as a cast with our characters and the choices we've made make something that is not just a YA movie. It's a movie in its own right, too. It's both. It's an adult movie and a YA movie. And a very strong action movie; there's a lot of action in it, but with a very central and emotional heart.

Shailene Woodley: I agree. That was prefect. I second that.

What do you want people to know about your characters, Tris and Four?

Woodley: I want people to know that Tris is normal and that she's not a superhero. Maybe she's an action star just because of the definition of that, but she's not a superhero. She's a very normal, young woman who is trying to figure herself out as well as trying to help her community. She's sort of been given this gift of being the only one to be able to do what she's able to do, and I don't think that it makes her more special than anyone else. I think that she just happens to be the one who's in the seat to do greatness. Sort of like "With great power comes great responsibility." I know that quote is used so often and it's so cliche, but I f*ckin' love it.

I want people to know she's normal. Every interview, people are like, "What does it feel like to play a superhero?" She's not a superhero. She's vulnerable, and she's sensitive and she's broken in a lot of ways, but she's forced to figure herself out through really extreme situations. And she doesn't know who she is. She's very normal. I mean, she burps sometimes.

James: I love burping.

What about Four?

James: I think he's one of my favorite characters that I've played because he has this, um...

Woodley: He's amazing. (Read the full interview on moviefone)

Hypable interviewed members of the Divergent cast:
The cast told us today’s first-look is about a minute of highlights including people jumping off trains and buildings like the Dauntless love to do. It will introduce people to the series whether or not they’ve heard of it before. We’ve confirmed with Summit that it will not be released online.
“That’s the point of this, to show Divergent to the fan base and explain what it’s about for people who haven’t read it and don’t know anything about it,” said Christain Madsen.
Added Teller, “It’s probably showing a lot of the tone, it’s showing how Neil’s shooting it. It’s a really big movie, big budget.”
We also asked about favorite sets. Again, the Dining Hall featured as one of the cast’s picks. They were also impressed by the warehouse where training occurred. “We our fighting and training there and it sucked,” said Newbold. “It was cold and drafty, but it looks so good on screen, and I loved how we were so uncomfortable because it was a really nice initiation” into the dystopian world. (Read the full interview at Hypable)

ET Canada Interviewed Theo & Shailene:

What does Shailene’s co-star Theo think of Tris and Four’s romance? “[It] was something that came very naturally to Shai and I,” he tells Erin. “We have lots of similarities, but we also have enough differences which creates fire.” Adding, “when two people are the same it doesn’t do well for chemistry.”
Now we know that having a hot onscreen romance with Theo James, who plays Four in the film, isn’t that difficult, but as we found out, acting on a green screen is. “Green screen acting is by far harder than any other acting in the world,” Shailene admits, adding, “because you have to pretend something’s happening that’s so out of context for normal reality.”
